I know the Mets are kind of a joke right now, but they've got the resources to turn it around faster than probably any one else and the Phillies are starting to look their age, the Braves have yet to really put it all together, and the Marlins are still a mystery.
The Mets are in now what may be the toughest division in baseball. Plus I don't see the Wilpons being able to up payroll to match that market anywhere in the near future.

Because of that, I voted for San Diego. Weak division and they have some good young talent--that Latos trade certainly helped.
